Back to School

We started back with schooling yesterday. It felt really great to be back on a schedule. The kids were more excited about starting back than I thought they would be. We spent the morning doing book work and History. In the afternoon, we did Social Studies and Science. The kids enjoyed using crackers and water to demonstrate how water causes erosion. We looked at dirt and sand to compare what they are made up of and used peroxide to demonstrate how dirt has more decayed matter in it than sand, thus making it more fertile. I love the hands on and so do they!! I feel great about the went well :).
